Catherine Howe’s “Wallflower” monotypes are made using acrylic inks on black Curious Metallics acid free paper, 300 gsm. The paper surface has a subtle shimmer. Like much of Howe’s work, the wildly gestural depiction of a flower hovers on the edges of complete abstraction.


The Artist

Catherine Howe

Catherine Howe’s prints appear to reference 17th-century still life paintings, yet are not about representation or narrative; rather, she says they are exercises in the evocative power of painting as a material. What appear to be flora, figures, and foods dissolve into abstract flurries of brush marks and fields of commingled colors when observed closely. Howe’s use of the carborundum collagraph medium mimics her approach to painting, allowing her to make rapid, deft gestures in thick gel medium.
